Corporations run the show in Transatlantic Trade Deal

‘A disturbing business bias’ in the translatantic free trade deal has been revealed by Corporate Europe Observatory. An access to documents request to the secretive Commission showed that 93% of the meetings between Brussels bureaucrats and ‘stakeholders’ during the preparations of the negotiations were with big business – a ‘parallel world of a very large number of  intimate meetings with big business lobbyists behind closed doors’.  Read European Commission preparing for EU-US trade talks: 119 meetings with industry lobbyists

One thought on “Corporations run the show in Transatlantic Trade Deal

  1. this issue needs to be fought against, for the sake of what’s left of our rights as citizens governed by laws we ought to have a word about, not left to the whim and greed of multinational monsters; unfortunately, while the EU is finalizing this disgraced deal, there’s no sign of an organized campaign against it; time to wake up, I think, and quickly.
